Abstract(in English) In speech communication, people convey intentions through what is said (linguistic information) and how it is said (paralinguistic information). In this study, we address focus, a kind of emphasis among paralinguistic information, and create, analyse and publish an English corpus, which contains speech that differed in the placement of focus and text reflecting the corresponding implications. The corpus and its analysis demonstrate the possibility of converting paralinguistic information into linguistic information, which is expected to be applied to paralinguistic translation in the future.
